EP 163: YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE YOUR CONFLICTS: GERMANIC NEW MEDICINE WITH DR. MELISSA SELL
In this episode I speak with Dr. Melissa Sell about how your body’s symptoms tell the story of your inner conflicts. She shares Germanic New Medicine as a system of understanding the vast intelligence of the body, and how biological programs trigger in the body as a response to stress, shock and trauma. She describes several examples of symptoms (i.e. joint pain, skin problems, stubborn weight gain) and what inner conflicts would cause those symptoms (i.e. I’m not good enough, feeling attacked, abandonment). She says that the moment that most of us wonder, “What’s wrong with me?” when physical symptoms arise, is when the body is actually in resolution mode. She offers a whole new way of understanding our body and encourages us to tap into our inner wisdom to make choices about our health.
How the intelligence of the body senses when we’re under stress and immediately either proliferates cell production or decreases cell production in order to support us.
Most commonly seen conflict is self-devaluation (either: 1. I’m not enough, or 2. I’m not supported) and how that affects the connective tissues of the body (muscles, ligaments, lymph nodes, bones)
Isolation, fish-out-of-water feeling, abandonment, and financial scarcity conflicts & how they can create water retention, inflammation or stubborn weight gain
How physical symptoms arise once the issue is already in resolution & how we interpret that something is ‘wrong’ when the body has already gone into solution mode
How skin issues often arise from either feeling soiled or attacked
How our conflicts can be reactivated by how we react to our physical symptoms of resolution
You as your guide -- knowing you have access to all the wisdom in the universe
